Garden of Roses

Our Tradition

Every year, on or around Midsummer's Day, Naomi House & Jacksplace give 12 red roses as peppercorn rent to Naomi and David Cornelius-Reid. This beautiful tradition has a long history, originating before Naomi House first opened in 1997. 

To honour this tradition, we’ve teamed up with a local blacksmith who will be creating handmade unique metal roses, for you to treasure, gift to a friend or have in memory of a loved one. 

You can be part of our tradition

By leaving a donation to our Garden of Roses campaign you can get your own unique, locally crafted metal rose. There are 4 beautiful designs for you to choose from. Your rose will be part of the display, available for you to view before taking it home. Find out more below.
